BK Virus: 8.12

Went in for a blood draw this morning to see if the creatinine miraculously dropped overnight, but no. It seems that things get suddenly worse more than things get suddenly better.

So I go in for the biopsy tomorrow and find out whether the damaging factor is rejection or BK Virus and to determine the next course of action. It's a tough conundrum. Treat the rejection and the BKV increases. Treat the BKV and the door is open for rejection.

Miraculous improvement not anticipated anytime soon.

  1. So your creatinine level was up significantly more? I love you and I'm praying (or something) for a miracle anyway. Again, thanks so much for staying in touch with this blog. xxoomm
